A brief note to alert British boxing fans, [and only 3 of them read these pages], channel 442 starts a three part re-run on Mike Tyson’s eventful early career – should be a nice recap for those too young to recall his thunderous prime and those who had begun to forget the demonic like swathe he cut through the ponderous 1980’s heavyweight division.
Following Tyson toward the end of the week is the beginning of a series covering Sugar Ray Robinson. Marvellous. A study for those who love the sweet science. And free to air too. A increasingly rare phrase in these PPV times.
